Whatever the government give the poor people, it lines the pockets of the rich. Like the recent 300 bht a month handout which is given in coupons for only purchase of certain items and can only be changed for certain goods at chosen outlets. ;)

So the outlets that are already well into the money are the winners.

YES ... Me too kev. The story goes ...

The video, first posted Nov. 7 by Godzillanoi Kephet, shows the elderly woman seize the snake by the tail and perform a ferocious overhead swing to end its existence.

“Again, granny, it’s not dead yet!” the videographer can be heard shouting as the granny whacks the snake with such force she decapitates it.

“It’s dead now, granny,” he says as she reveals the reason for the alleged revenge-killing:

“It ate my toads!”

Scams & Crime / 12 Arrested in Thai Football Rigging Inquiry
« Last post by Johnnie F. on Yesterday at 09:45:44 AM »
BANGKOK — Football Association of Thailand president Somyot Poompanmuang says five players and two match officials from the top-flight national league are among 12 people arrested for alleged match-fixing.

Somyot held a news conference Tuesday with national police chief Chakthip Chaijinda to announce an investigation was underway into the results of a match in July and three matches in September.

Police reported that four players from the Navy club and one from Nakhon Ratchasima were allegedly paid up to 200,000 Thai baht ($6,100) to manipulate results.

The FAT and Royal Thai Police used information from data services company Sportradar as part of the investigation after reports of an unusual number of goals being scored in the late stages of the games.

“Match-fixing has been committed for a long time,” Somyot said during the news conference at the Royal Thai Police headquarters. “It’s time we eradicate this wrongdoing which is like a bad diseased of our body that needs to be cured.”

Chakthip said 12 people were in custody. Court details were not immediately available.

Somyat said those involved had confessed to the match-fixing.

“I have to give big credit to the Royal Thai Police for their work or otherwise we will see the fall of Thai football if match-fixing is not tackled,” Somyot said.

Chakthip said the alleged fixing was coordinated through a network comprising players, two referees, a club official and domestic and international investors.

He said the match and club officials can face up to 10 years in prison and fines if found guilty of match-fixing, and players could face up to five years in jail and fines.

The strangest thing you’ve heard an expat complain about?

At dinner tonight I overheard an older couple (British I think) complain to each other during the entire meal about how difficult it is to get their helicopter into Thailand.

Rich people problems.

Not that strange when you realize these are the type of people who complain about people everywhere, no matter what country they are in.

Most of the bitter expats who complain about Thai people would be happy to engage you in a conversation about how much they hate people in their own country too.

Bitter people are bitter regardless of what country they are in.

Complaining about how nobody here understands what they're saying - whilst speaking english.

Complaining is the Expat national pastime here. Most of every week is spent preparing inane things to complain about while drinking changs with your mates on the weekend.
